The Japanese brand TNB came up with the new Trickster 18.9 complete bike. It's not too expensive (around 650eur/usd) and probably a good option for beginners. The frame, fork and handlebars are original TNB parts. It's nice to see some good old crossed tubes. They are not dead yet ;-) Delirium distribution is selling the bike in Japan. Check their website for more information and the promo clip to see the bike in action.
Remember the Jamsado poster? The actual contest was even more funny. Because of the weather there wasn't much time and the guys made the best out of the situation by having a couple of fun contests to get those sponsor goodies in the hands of the riders. IGI, Tienda Flat and Fade Footwear supported the event.
THE GAMES: - KICK BIKE , 5 rounds with 5 finalists and one finals to know the champion who won FADE shoes - SCUFF JAM, the person who could hold a scuffing trick the longest to win a pair of FADE shoes - HANG IN THERE , the longest HANG 5 for a pair of IGI SWEETSPOT pedals - KOREAN ARM WRESTLING to win final prize ; a pair of IGI MICROPHONE PEGS
Enjoy the video! That looked like a fun day despite the rain!
Let's take a closer look at Mateus bike! If you know his riding then you know that this bike has to handle a lot of punishment ;-) The video proves that, besides the bikes you get to see a bunch of flatland and street riding. English subtitles would have been perfect but the close-up shots of the bike are good, so you can see what's what.
The annual Galaxy Contest took place at the Galaxy Mall in Bekasi, Indonesia last weekend. About 35 riders were competing and Haris Kediri was the winner at the end of the day! Congratulations! A local website published a little story about the contest in Indonesian.

The events dates keep flowing in which is great! Today we have 2 from the USA and one from the Philippines. AFA Round 2 is going to be in May - check the recent info on the scoring system as well. Believe it or not but it's going to be the 27th York Jam this year. Closing in on the 30 but never getting old. Speaking of growing up - Chris Böhm is a dad since a couple of days. Congratulations! However, that doesn't stop his relentless show schedule. He is going to visit the Philippines and the locals will organize a contest and jam for him.
Roy Christopher who describes himself as a write and scientist sent us a link to an interview with Alexis Desolneux which he did for his personal website. Apparently he was just looking for a new frame when he discovered his fascination with Heresy: "After watching all of their videos and finding out everything I could about the brand and the riders behind it, I built up my own Heresy frame with as many of their parts as I could get. Given my fast fandom, I knew I needed to talk to their leader."
The second contest and jam that took place last weekend in Hungary was the Veres Jam. We already mentioned the story behind the venue a while ago. Rob Alton and his wife are starting a business there and this was more or less their kick off jam. Sevisual was there to film and Rob, being a true artist, showed some of his show skills. Enjoy the video! A few fun contests took place as well. You can find the lucky winners below.

Only 2 weeks until the first round of this year's AFA series! We saw their new promo clip on IG and found some updated information on their website. You can find all the details in the event section: AFA Round 1.
The format is going to be best of 2 runs with no finals. The scoring system of the series has been simplified as requested by the riders: "Each placing is worth a pre-defined number of points. We add up all the points at the end of the year and that's your standing". You can find a scoring table on afabmx.com
